Paper Abstract

Many groups today are researching the characteristics of beryllium, in an attempt to find ways of producing high quality (low scatter) stable beryllium optics. This paper discusses a two-part study in which (1) an attempt is being made to determine the best, raw beryllium mixture and preparation, machining and polishing processes, test and analysis methods, and (2) a proposed model for the prediction of scatter from beryllium surfaces (based on a knowledge of surface and subsurface interactions with incident wavelengths) will be refined against empirical data. We discuss design of the experiment, the model, and some of the early results.
